Starting out with his career as a member of the group HOTSHOT in 2014, Ha Sung Woon has established his name over the years as a singer-songwriter with various talents to watch out for. He further catapulted to fame after becoming part of the powerful and phenomenal project group Wanna One, which emerged from the debut reality show Produce 101.

After the promotions of Wanna One as a group ended, the vocalist made his debut as a solo artist with the mini-album My Moment. It was headlined by the song “Bird” and was released on February 28, 2019. Recently, he came back with a second mini-album titled BXXX, and along with its lead single “Blue”, it has dominated various music charts since its release on July 8, 2019.

The singer further captivated global K-Pop fans with his great voice and exceptional dancing skills. His striking features and talents also made him popular as an “all-rounder idol”, especially during his Wanna One days.

As a soloist, his fans are called HA: NEUL with “HA” coming from his name and “NEUL” meaning “always”. When combined, the name holds a significant meaning of “always with Ha Sung Woon”. Additionally, “Haneul” in Korean means “Sky” – which perfectly suits the idol whose popular nickname is Cloud.
